Aug 3 2016, 8:18 pm

It may be one of the most underrated desserts, but cheesecake remains to be one of the yummiest and most indulgent treats around. There is a reason why it has stuck around since the Greeks invented it over 2400 years ago.

From traditional New York-style cheesecake to the more unique apple crumb cheese pie, there is an abundance of cheesecake to be enjoyed any day of the week in Montreal.


Famous for their monstrous cheesecakes, Rockaberry serves up incredible desserts all year round. With a more diner-like atmosphere, Rockaberry has pretty much any kind of cheesecake imaginable, including the infamous apple crumb cheese pie. Oh, and it’s also crazy addictive (your friends will have to stop you from taking home the whole cake).

In true deli style, Reuben’s has an entire counter filled with scrumptious cheesecakes eyeing you as soon as you walk through the door. The extensive menu invites you to try six different cheesecakes, each more enticing than the last. If you ask me, their original strawberry cheesecake is where it’s at. But if you’re looking for something a little different, they also offer a chocolate cheesecake explosion made with chocolate cream, nuts, chocolate chips, and caramel.
